The music industry hasn't been rocked with as many public allegations of sexual misconduct as Hollywood, but insiders are still seeking to show solidarity with the #MeToo movement on its biggest night. Key executives have called on artists and employees alike to wear a white rose Sunday in support of Time's Up as the Grammys celebrate its 60th anniversary with a ceremony in New York City.
